Frangiadis Associates Receives Gold Award in Best Use of Local Art/Artisan Talent from Home Builders & Remodelers Association of Cape Cod

Monday, October 20, 2014

Marion, MA– Last Thursday over 200 professionals attended the 2nd Annual BRICC Award Reception & Dinner presented by the Home Builders & Remodelers Association of Cape Cod (HBRACC) at the Ridge Club in Sandwich, MA, where 2014 winners were announced and honored.  Anthi Frangiadis Associates (AFA) received the Gold Award in Best Use of Local Art/Artisan Talent.  The BRICC Awards recognize excellence in building, remodeling, design, sales and marketing on Cape Cod & the Vineyard, and provide regional, statewide, and national recognition.

Design work completed by AFA in May 2013 at the Wequassett Resort & Golf Club, Harwich, MA received the Gold Award for Best Use of Local Art/Artisan Talent.  The submission entry covered the renovation of the Outer Bar & Grille/Pool Restroom & Fitness Center Improvements constructed by Shawmut Design & Construction.  The signature design element of this renovation was original work by Kolman Artisan Glass®, Sudbury, MA, which is available through the Drawing Room and is a dramatic form of decorative glass for use in high-end residential and commercial settings. 

Through the use of exotic papers, paints, and resins, Constance Shattuck Kolman and her artisans transform this centuries old medium into a contemporary and unique finish that strikes a chord with every new design handcrafted in her studio.   The collaboration of Frangiadis Associates and Kolman Artisan Glass has been in existence since 2012; more collaborative work by Frangiadis Associates can be viewed at 

“We are excited and honored to be recognized by our peers with this Gold Award;” says Anthi Frangiadis, sole proprietress.  “Further, it inspires us to continue to work with Connie and seek out new opportunities to incorporate her, and other locally sourced, high quality artisan work into our design solutions.”
